Man Captured in Nosara for Sexual Abuse Charge

By Arianna McKinney

On Tuesday, February 19, the Nosara Public Force collaborated in the capture of a man with last names Palacio Palacios who was accused of sexual abuse of a handicapped minor in Liberia.

Nosara Police Chief Gerardo Aguilar Aguilar said that officials from the Judicial Organism (OIJ) in Liberia requested collaboration from the Nosara police upon learning that the suspect might be working at the Nosara garbage dump.  When the police approached the suspect, Aguilar said he appeared to be nervous and gave the police another name.  However, the photo and name could not be seen clearly on the identification card that the man presented, so they took him to the police station for further investigation.  Upon reviewing the contents of his wallet, they found his real identification card and the suspect was transported to Liberia. 

Aguilar said the man was wanted for an incident that occurred in 2004. He could be facing up to 15 years in prison since the sexual abuse case involved a handicapped person.
